I am SO excited to be showing you this yarn. The folk at Blacker Yarns have been back in touch. (No, they don’t sponsor me!) They sent a sample of Brushwork, this years limited edition birthday yarn. The breeds they’ve included are so intriguing. Scottish Bowmont is a cross between Saxon Merino and Shetland; with a touch of Castlemilk Moorit, which gives this years shade card a warm undertone – probably why I love the colours more than their previous birthday yarns.
More on Brushwork as the week progresses. But don’t get too excited just yet. The yarn wont go on sale till 28 September.
